We're interested in a tour (about 15 days + or - sounds OK) from Chengdu to Lhasa along the northern route.
We have traveled twice before throughout "central" Tibet from Lhasa down toward Shigatse etc. and the EBC, once by air to Lhasa and SUV inside Tibet, and the second time by train up from Xining and SUV inside Tibet.

We will be two, most probably three, travelers. We can leave from the US on/a June 7, but will then need about one week in and around Chengdu to get acclimated to the time difference and re/see some areas around Chengdu.

So our approximate Chengdu-Lhasa start date would be around June 14.

Please give us an idea of what is possible, and about what such a tour would cost. Your recommendation re level of hotels and prices levels would also be helpful, if that impacts the price significantly. We usually stay in guest houses or economy hotels, but we'd like to weigh our options.

Hi Neil,
Thanks for contacting us!
Mid June is a good time for this trip, however, with regrets to share that the northern route from Chengdu to Lhasa is not available for foreign travelers. I have sent you an email with the details, please have a look and let me know your comments and thoughts.
Look forward to your reply for further assistance.
Warm regards,
